Lifeworks Staffordshire is a charity that supports people on the Autistic Spectrum from the age of 14. Lifeworks was established in 2006 by Louise Zandian who is our CEO. Lifeworks received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services in 2012.

We understand from our own experiences, knowledge, and professional training, that being on the Autistic Spectrum has many challenges for those on the spectrum and their families. 

Mission Statement

To support marginalised people 14+ with an average IQ with Autism, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Tourette's Syndrome, mostly with mental ill health and their carers to find a sustainable lifestyle.

LCC (Lifeworks Community Computers)

Lifeworks Community Computers was started by Mike Gibson to support people on the Autistic Spectrum, by carrying out repairs and upgrades to computers, teaching clients and carers how to use and build them, as well as supplying computers to the members of Lifeworks.


Unfortunately, Lifeworks have had no choice but to close this service due to moving into a much smaller premises.


Most of the equipment in the LCC was donated to The Community Recycling Consortium but some of it was sold on to clients or members of the public.

Open Day 2019

Lifeworks had a fantastic open day on the 15th February 2019. The mayor of Newcastle-under-Lyme Gill Heesom came to officially open Lifeworks at our new premises in Merrial Street, Newcastle.

Our CEO Louise Zandian, our staff, trustees, volunteers and some of our clients and carers came along to support us, as well as professionals from the Autism Assessment Service, Job Centre Plus, N-u-L Council, Staffs University, North Staffs Carers Association, The Dyslexia Association and Radio Stoke.

The main purpose of the event was to network and introduce Lifeworks to new people and professionals and advertise ourselves through Radio Stoke. There was a buffet and cake, prosecco, and a raffle to raise funds.


Louise Zandian donated the cake and prosecco to celebrate the opening. The buffet was sponsored by Morrison's Goose St, Adbeck Fabrications LTD and Prestige Roofing & Building Services.


Some of our volunteers, carers and clients donated items to the raffle.

£86 was raised for Lifeworks which will go directly to us and will be used to help our clients.


Lifeworks would like to thank all who attended, donated & helped to organise this event as well as Gill Heesom for opening Lifeworks & Radio Stoke.
